UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their job and why are they available in data center facilities all over the world?
UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. That is a battery used to power a PC or a web server to avoid the loss of data when the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unstable. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the main power source and to ensure the continuous functioning of all of the machines located there. As the UPS runs all the time, it provides the required power for the web servers to remain working until the generator starts and takes over. Using this sort of a backup is essential for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and information intact in case there is a power surge or outage, due to the fact that it provides them with enough time to react until the issue is resolved and the primary power supply is restored.
